Who Is Allah?

There are 20 comments on the Aug 24, 2007, The Brussels Journal story titled Who Is Allah?. In it, The Brussels Journal reports that:

“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

Why all this cloak and dagger operation?
Want to hide the fact that Mary had other children?
Let's see what shamma says!!!
This page has all of them. Back then Jesus and Mary were very common names.

http://www.scripturessay.com/how-many-marys-a...

1. Mary, the mother of Jesus (Luke 1-2).

2. Mary Magdalene, the woman from whom Jesus cast out seven demons. The name Magdalene indicates that she came from Magdala, a city on the southwest coast of the Sea of Galilee. After Jesus cast seven demons from her, she became one of His followers. Luke 7:37, Luke 8:23, Luke 87:36-50

3. Mary of Bethany, sister of Martha and Lazarus (Luke 10:38-42).

4. Mary, the mother of the disciple James and Joses (Matt 27:55-61).

5. Mary, the mother of John Mark (Acts 12:12).

6. Mary of Rome (Rom 16:6).

Another encyclopedia lists the following.

The Name Mary in the New Testament:

The name Mary occurs in 51 passages of the New Testament to which the following group of articles is confined. Collating all these references we have the following apparent notes of identification:

(a) Mary, the mother of Jesus;
(b) Mary Magdalene;
(c) Mary, the mother of James;
(d) Mary, the mother of Joses;
(e) Mary, the wife of Clopas;
(f) Mary of Bethany;
(g) Mary, the mother of Mark;
(h) Mary of Rome;
(i) the “other” Mary.

Hope this helped a lot, bro.

I have always wanted to know who was the "other" Mary.

The Sanskrit word GAU or GO takes on different meanings in different contexts.

In the context of faunal forms, gau refers to a cow (the animal), other meanings of the word gau (in varying contexts) are mantra, soul, sky, matter, rhythm, inner radiance, sense faculties and so on.

If a person's wisdom INCREASES over time....it implies that his starting wisdom was LESS than it is now!!!

YOUR mangod had LESS wisdom(brains) to start with...as it appears that it has been increasing over time.

One of the cats among the pigeons could be this?

"Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and BROTHER of James and Joses and Judas and Simon and are not his SISTERS here with us?" [Mark 6:3; RSV]

We need some real answers as to why Mary the mother of Jesus could not have other children as claimed by liars!!

That was my pleasure, bro.

You quoted something very interesting:

""Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and BROTHER of James and Joses and Judas and Simon and are not his SISTERS here with us?"

Please read that very carefully and notice that Mark never wrote:

"Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and Joseph and BROTHER of James and Joses and Judas and Simon and are not his SISTERS here with us?

CHINA CAPTURES INDIAN TERRITORY:

Meanwhile, Chinese troops have infiltrated tens of km into Indian territory and have encamped there with no intention as of now of budging and are waving banners in English that read, "You are in Chinese territory." The government of India is under severe pressure from the Indian public to take military action.

I remember, two things in this context:

1) In the late 1960s, the Mother, Sri Aurobindo's Jewish spiritual collaborator, had, in a vision, seen Chinese troops marching into the heart of Southern India several thousands of kms away from the Indo-China border, and

2) Many years ago, my ex-master had told someone that in the future China would conquer India.

Well, let's see what happens....

Interestingly, both the satanists and the spiritualist aim at a one world order sans geo-political borders, sans religions, sans politics, sans money, sans the old way of living. Barfani Baba, a 220 year old plus yogi living in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, had, in a booklet published many years ago, stated that by 2015 the world would experience great difficulties leading to destruction with just a handful of people surviving the mega-holocaust. Bose is busy accumulating ex-military personnel to help out during the destructive phase - world war 3. I am saying nothing for known reasons and am on the sidelines.

Every braindead fanatic talks like you.

Muslims say only Muslims will be saved after the destruction of the wicked and the Jews, according to Islam, rank among the most evil people on earth who will be completely destroyed.

Christians say that only those who believe in Jesus will survive the holocaust.

Buddhists say that only good Buddhists who sincerely took to the teachings of the Buddha will be saved by the Maitreya.

Hindus opine that only the clean-hearted Hindus will be saved by the Kalki, while the mlechchas (unclean types like Jews, Christians and Muslims will perish).

So, now, who's correct?

ROFL.

And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
For a proper understanding of Jesus and, therefore, all other doctrines that relate to Him, His two natures must be properly understood and defined. Jesus is one person with two natures. This is why He would grow in wisdom and stature (Luke 2:52) yet know all things (John 21:17). He is the Divine Word that became flesh (John 1:1,14).

Jesus’ existence didn’t begin with His birth or conception, but pre-existed Creation, as made by Him and for Him. Jesus was both with God and God Himself. That such a divine Person exists is taught throughout Scripture, starting in Genesis. The plurality within the Godhead makes it possible for God to be intrinsically a ‘God of Love’.

In Jesus, God took on human nature, so He could die for our sins as a fellow human, taking the penalty we deserve for our sins. In fact, this was planned from Eternity, as the names of the Redeemed were already written in His Book of Life from the foundation of the World.

When Jesus took on humanity, this was an addition to His divine nature, not a subtraction of His divinity. Thus everything He taught, He taught with authority—including about Creation and the Flood.

Most religions believe in a coming redeemer and when this person comes, the OT will be fulfilled and the world will know it. Christianity is the only religion that has a negative view of this person. The Messiah will unite the righteous against the wicked and they both come in all races, creeds and colors.
